OST-02-12987 - Certificate - Foreign Charter Air Transportation
OST-02-12989 - Certificate - Interstate Charter Air Transportation

Order to Show Cause Proposing Issuance of Certificate Authority | Word

Presently, USA Jet's fleet consists of twelve DC-9-15F freighters and thirteen DA-20 Falcon Jet freighters. While the carrier's cargo operations have been and continue to be primarily focused on the automotive industry (two of the carrier's customers accounted for over 80 percent of its operating revenues), it has also provided charter cargo operations for DHL, UPS, and the U.S. Postal Service using its DC-9 aircraft.

If found fit, USA Jet proposes to reconfigure two of its DC-9-15F aircraft into an all business-class passenger configuration (50 seats) for a seasonal charter service. Specifically, USA Jet plans to market this service primarily to college sports teams during the three-month winter season of each year commencing in January 2004.

Motion to Withhold Information from Public Disclosure

A small portion of the data submitted in the Applications is of a confidential and proprietary nature, and should not be disseminated to the general public. Movant therefore hereby respectfully requests confidential treatment by the Department for this information. In support of this request, Movant states as follows: When Movant filed the Applications, a small amount of confidential information was inadvertently included. Upon later review of the dockets in this matter, Movant realized that this limited information had been accidentally included, and now seeks to protect it from public disclosure in order to mitigate any further harm that might occur.

Re: Application of USA Jet

This letter will provide to you the information required pursuant to Orders 2003-5-31 and 2003-7-9 as a prerequisite to receipt of effective authority by USA Jet Airlines, Inc. In the Orders, the Department issued certificates of public convenience and necessity authorizing USA Jet Airlines to operate, respectively, interstate and foreign charter air transportation of persons, property and mail. (The carrier already held certificate authority for interstate and foreign transportation of property and mail.) Condition (1) of those certificates requires the carrier to provide certain information and materials to the Department prior to obtaining effective authority.

The financial posture of the carrier remains exceptionally strong. As of September 30, 2003, its current assets stood at $26 million, and they exceeded current liabilities by $14.2 million. It continues to report healthy profits; for the first three months of its fiscal year 2003 (July 1-September 30), it reported an operating profit of $3.2 million, and a net profit of $653,000. I am attaching a copy of the company's unaudited financial statements for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2003 (Attachment 2).

As suggested above, it is of great importance that USA Jet obtain its effective authority from the Department as soon as possible. The FAA process has taken the carrier right up to the beginning of the college basketball season, and while it has been unable to contract for the proposed operations while its authority is still pending, it will have opportunities to sign contracts for transportation of these teams (which is essential to its operating plan) if it receives its effective authority in time to begin operations before the second week in November.

Re: FAA Operations Specifications

As promised in my letter of October 29, 2003, I am attaching the FAA Operations Specifications issued today to USA Jet Airlines, Inc. authorizing operation of passenger charter service. This is the last outstanding bit of information required under the Department's orders to make the carrier's passenger charter authority effective.

OST-02-12987 - Foreign Passeger Charter Certificate
OST-02-12989 - Interstate Passenger Charter Certificate

Issued and Served November 24, 2003

Order Confirming Oral Action and Issuing Effective Certificates

On October 30, 2003, USA Jet filed updated financial information demonstrating that it continued to have available resources sufficient to meet the Department's financial fitness requirement together with a statement indicating that it had not undergone any significant change in areas affecting its fitness. This filing also contained documents indicating that USA Jet had acquired appropriate insurance to conduct passenger operations. On October 31, 2003, USA Jet filed a copy of its updated FAA operating authority allowing passenger operations. All of the information provided by USA Jet was satisfactory and, under the circumstances, we concluded that there was no reason to require it to wait the full six days for its authority to become effective. Therefore, on November 3, we orally advised the carrier that we were making its certificate authority for passenger operations effective on that date. By this order, we confirm our oral action of November 3 and reissue the carrier's certificates to reflect their effective date.

OST-2012-0220
- Disclaimer of Jurisdiction, or in the Alternative, Approval of the Transfer Pursuant to 49 USC §41105

Issued and Served August 7, 2014

Order Dismissing Application

On December 28, 2012, USA Jet Airlines, Inc. filed an application in Docket OST-2012-0220 requesting that the Department disclaim jurisdiction over the corporate reorganization of USAJ in which USAJ would be converted from a Delaware corporation to a Delaware limited liability company. Subsequently, the air carrier’s representative informed us that the air carrier was no longer pursuing a corporate reorganization or its application for a disclaimer of jurisdiction.

In light of the above, the Department dismisses, without prejudice, the application filed in Docket OST-2012-0220 by USAJ. We invite USAJ to refile its application when it is fully prepared to prosecute its application.
